Viking VI SE auction raises $30,000
Yamaha Motor Corp., USA, again provided a new Special Edition (SE) Viking VI Side-by-Side (SxS) vehicle to the SEAL-Naval Special Warfare Family Foundation (NSW) for auction at their annual fundraiser near San Diego, Calif. The Assembled in USA Viking VI helped raise $30,000 towards the organization’s mission of supporting SEAL members’ families. This marks Yamaha’s third consecutive year of backing NSW, raising more than $70,000 in funding for the much-deserved recipients.
The SEAL-Naval Special Warfare Family Foundation is a San Diego based 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization founded in 2008 that raises awareness and funds for special programs in direct support of the NSW families on a local, national and global scale. Further details about the NSW organization and fundraiser can be found at SEAL-NSW Family Foundation Home and SEAL-NSW Family Foundation | Offering assistance to the Families of Naval Special Warfare..
“Yamaha is honored to continue its support of the SEAL-NSW Family Foundation going on three years now, especially considering their important mission,” said Steve Nessl, Yamaha’s ATV/SxS group marketing manager. “With the funds raised by the auctioned Viking VI SE going toward assisting the SEAL-NSW families who sacrifice so much for our freedoms, we hope the event and donor support continues to raise awareness for this respected organization.”
“Yamaha’s vehicles have been very popular in our auction the last few years, bringing in more than $70,000 for SEAL members’ families,” said William R. Fenick, CAPT, USN (Ret), Executive Director for SEAL-NSW. “We are dedicated to supporting the needs of these important families, and partners like Yamaha allow us to provide the right programs.”
In addition to all of the great features of the Yamaha Vikings, the 2016 Viking VI SE is available in a high-quality Carbon Metallic painted bodywork with aluminum wheels, a soft sun top, mud flaps, over fenders and under seat storage, all at an MSRP of $14,999.

Protect your head with one of these feature-rich helmets
I was young, screaming around the trails by my house on my Yamaha Banshee. I was sporting some sweet gear and the crown jewel was my Bell Helmets Moto 4 Ricky Johnson signature helmet — the coolest helmet ever (yes, I’m that old). I was riding along a trail that was converted rail line, so the ground was crushed rock. I didn’t see the washout until it was too late.
The accident was pretty bad. I had been pulled under the machine in the air and it landed on me, slamming me both into the ground and crushing me under the machine. I was bloodied, mangled and with parts of me that weren’t where they we supposed to be — BUT — I was alive. The helmet had done what it was supposed to do and took the brunt of the impacts to my head. My sweet skid lid was toast, but I lived to buy a new one.
Wear a helmet, plain and simple. It’ll save your life. The helmets available today are so advanced that you really can’t go wrong. Find one that fits right, is in your budget and have at it. Any helmet is better than no helmet, but here are the 10 best helmets money can buy.

Five steps to a cleaner UTV
Unlike some folks who buy a cool off-road vehicle like a Jeep or a truck, but then they never take it off road to avoid getting it dirty, UTV drivers don’t have that issue. We like to get dirty. Most of us don’t swerve to miss a mud pit and for most, the thought of coming home with clean clothes and a spotless machine means we didn’t go riding at all. However, it pays to know how to clean your UTV properly.
At the end of the day, a cleaner machine is going to last longer, so you eventually need to get the grime off. That means you’re going to have to clean it. Luckily there are some great products out there to help you with these simple steps to a cleaner UTV. Remember a few basics before you get to cleaning. Make sure the air intake is sealed off from water getting into the airbox. Make sure your exhaust is plugged from getting water in as well. And make sure any electrical or fuel components are securely away from water as well. It’ll just save you a few headaches. Now, about that mud…
